I did it. I finally attempted to knit a small hat for my youngest son. I have to say, honestly, it felt so foreign! I was literally all thumbs.
It was as if someone replaced my nimble crochet fingers with gigantic bulbous appendages. My hands would not obey me or even meet me half way.
My efforts weren't a complete waste of time as the hat turned out "okay." And it fit the intended head.
Will I be knitting anytime soon? Probably not. I am buried in special orders...which is a delightful problem to have!
I may attempt knitting again after the first of the year. Ah well, I did try. Enjoy the picture and my adorable model.
